Francis Coppola 'Diamond Collection' Claret
พันธุ์องุ่นผสม (Grape Blended)
Winemaking has been a Coppola family tradition for several generations. In fact, Agostino Coppola, Francis Coppola's grandfather, used to make wine in the basement of his New York apartment building using concrete vats he constructed himself. According to Uncle Mikey, they weren't fancy wines, just pleasant everyday drinking wines that anyone could enjoy. The wines that Francis Coppola makes today aren't the same as those Agostino made, but they are produced in the same spirit—for sharing with friends and family. It started over 30 years ago, when Francis and Eleanor Coppola and their kids were living in San Francisco. They were eager to find a small cottage in Napa Valley as a weekend retreat where they could make a little homemade wine. The family cottage they so desired turned out to be the great Niebaum Mansion on the famed Inglenook Estate. Suddenly, the prospect of restoring that legendary property sounded more exciting than making a little bit of wine in the basement. Once they had successfully accomplished the estate's restoration—a 30- year endeavor—the Coppola family decided to build a new winery so that at long last they could give a home to their ever-popular Diamond Collection and Rosso & Bianco wine brands. Since these wines have always reflected the gracious style of everyday living, Francis Coppola Presents Rosso & Bianco winery is the ideal place for friends and family to enjoy these wines, have a bite to eat, and relax outdoors in a comfortable, casual setting.
